Cat and I had a great visit in Harpers Ferry. It was very difficult to say goodbye. We walked together across the footbridge leading to Maryland. On the other side of the bridge I set my feet on Maryland soil and headed north toward Pennsylvania.
About four miles later I was on top of Weverton Cliffs looking back on the Potomac River. The climb was tough and the sun was hot but the view was beautiful.
I hope to make it to Washington Monument State Park ( mile 1039) before the day’s hike is over. If the heat calms down that is a realistic goal.
